Vinhay Keo is originally from Battambang, Cambodia. He received his BFA from Kentucky College of Art + Design at Spalding University and is currently an MFA candidate at California Institute of the Arts. As an interdisciplinary visual artist, his work examines intersectional identities as an immigrant, a Cambodian-American, a brown-body, and a gay man. A hybrid of installation, performance, and photography, his practice unpacks the nuances of trauma in a historical and contemporary context addressing the marginalization of minorities in effort to cultivate a more inclusive society. He received the Ellen Battell Stoeckel Fellowship to study at Yale Norfolk Summer School of Art, Louisville Visual Art's Rising Star Award, a Great Meadows Foundation grant, participated in workshops such as Anderson Ranch Art Center and Anne West’s writing reflection.
